[QUOTE=caperjack]Your F1 kesy isn't stuck in is it ![/QUOTE]

Thanks for the tip. I checked the F1 key and it functions normally, i.e when it is pressed, the help window opens. If not it does not until I use the mouse and move it a very small deviation and then stop.

Irrespective of what application I am in, the "help" windows keep opening automatically. Am not sure what triggers this. It seems to be some hesitation in moving the mouse. Very annoying. Thought it was a windows feature which could be turned off but it does not seem so. Others I have asked have suggested a virus but I have swept my machine twice with the latest definitions. I tried an adware remover but it didn't find anything. Hope someone can help
